Hooman Majd on the Daily Show

It's a real shame when the only insightful political discourse you can find about Iran happens to be on a comedy show!

Here's Hooman Majd doing some media for his new book The Ayatollah Begs to Differ: The Paradox of Modern Iran. He also blogs for Huffington Post.

Edit: And here he is talking about the book...


  1. Thanks John for adding me to your blogroll! I love your blog and will be visiting often!

    It is a shame! I don't know whether to be grateful for at least this much ... Or to scream with rage!

  2. salaam! i love your blog. (that was not a ta'arof either!) i just recently found it when i was looking up rumi's quote, "you were born with wings; why prefer to crawl through life?" haha. i was wondering, do you know what that quote would translate into in farsi? i'm having no luck trying to find it ):
